1 cup each softened butter, white sugar, and packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract and hot water
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. chopped walnuts
3 c. all-purpose flour
2 c. semi sweetened chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Mix butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beat, and then stir in vanilla.
- In a bowl, combine hot water and baking soda. Make sure that the baking soda dissolves completely. Once done, add to the batter along with salt.
- Stir in flour, nuts, and chocolate chips.
- Add large spoonfuls onto the pans.
- Bake for about 10 minutes or until the edges are a little bit crisp.
The pans do not have to be greased.
If you want your cookies to have uniform sizes, I highly suggest that you utilize an ice cream scoop when spooning the batter onto the pans.
Chocolate chip cookies have been around forever. They say that the first batch ever of this type of cookies was made back in 1938 by American chefs namely Sue Brides and Ruth Graves Wakefield. Since then, various recipes have come out.
